Where’s The Mercy: Finding Peace in the Midst of Trials

i’m standing with bare feet on a dirt road leading into a torn and abandoned village. there are thatched- roof houses still throwing flames up towards the sky, and smoke rising from fires that have been choked out. slowly inching forward, my feet are burning from the heat of the ground, yet my body is shivering from the cloudy sky above.

Final Lie: Real Men Don’t Get Raped

i couldn’t help but overhear a troubling conversation between a grandmother and her granddaughter. apparently they were looking for baby stuff for a boy, presumably the girls little brother. she must have picked out a pair of shoes with flowers on them, and with excitement exclaimed, “look! how about these! these are pretty!” now granted, perhaps she was just thinking of herself, but don’t we all when we are younger? we have no real capacity to understand the needs and wants of others, especially those who aren’t born yet. who knows, perhaps this little boy would grow up to be a florist?
